Does anyone know how exactly to tell whether a trout is a male or if it is a female ????? I have always gone by the shape of it's face to determine. I usually believe the ones with a slight kype forming to be the male trout. The females are determined by how blunt of a face the have. I am not sure if this is a correct way to determine this or not, so don't quote me on it. I am sure some of you out there know exactly how to determine this and I would love to hear some input on the matter. I like to name the fish as I release them and I can't help but think I may have insulted a trout or two by naming them according to the wrong gender :) Below are some pics of fish that I believe I have guessed right. Maybe or maybe not ?
|MALE ( Maybe?)|
|FEMALE ( I think ??)|
Now with that said, I am still left wondering about those that have features of both male and female. The ones that you just can't be sure about. Pictured Below.
Well there's my two cents worth on the matter, but I am pretty sure it's not 100% correct. A while back I did a post on a hat trick of a life time for Trout MaGee. We are due to have a new member of the family come this February. We decided to find out the gender of the baby. We have done this with each of our children and the doctors have been right 2 for 2. Some people don't believe in finding out the gender of their child and that's their decision to make. Power to them. The excitement and anticipation is just too much for my wife and I, so we love finding this out in advance. This time the doctor knew within 2 seconds of starting the ultrasound. So according to my technique in determining trouts gender, the following picture is what we are having. :) I can't wait!!!!!
|In case I am wrong about the trout, IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
Any name suggestions for our new fishing buddy ?????????? Remember our other two children's names are Ocean and Sephora. I am leaning towards Trout but I am open to anything having to due with fishing, nature, or earth in general. :)
Until Next Time..........Tight Lines to all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
